Event Details

Winter camp, like summer camp, is your opportunity to accomplish a ton of advancement in a short amount of time. And when we say "Schmitt's Ranch" you know what that means: exciting shooting sports, demanding pioneering projects, challenging orientering, and outdoor fun over the course of four days and three nights. We’re going all-out to take advantage of all your Scouting abilities.


Who should go and why?

  • First-year Scouts who have not yet reached First Class should definitely go. We will you get you over the line in time for the January Court of Honor
  • Experienced Scouts who want to advance to Star can complete almost all of the requirements at this one event.
  • Advanced Scouts who need service hours, Troop event participation credit, or a few additional merit badges in a short amount of time


What will we be doing?

  • Merit badge classes, including several Eagle-required badges. We'll do Communication, Pioneering, Wilderness Survival, Camping, Fishing, Orienteering and more.
  • Rank advancement opportunities, including activities to complete requirements, and conduct Boards of Review
  • Cooking. There will be an emphasis on cooking opportunities for Scouts needing to earn the Eagle-required Cooking merit badge. Scouts will plan, shop, then prepare and serve all three meals in a single day.
  • Troop leadership training for positions such as Patrol Leader, Den Chief, Troop Guide, and Quartermaster
  • Shooting sports including rifle, shotgun, tomahawk throwing, and archery
  • Fun with field games like capture-the-flag, campfires, pizza night, astronomy, and fishing
  • Service Project. We will conduct a significant service project as a sign of our appreciation to the Schmitts for letting us use their property and to gain service hours for rank advancement.

Registration

All participants, adults and Scouts, should use this invitation to register and pay (if applicable.)
